Wreck Check Specialists

Jim McHugh is widely respected in South Florida as an automotive collision expert. For more than 21 years, Jim has owned operated and managed a high-quality auto body collision center and collectible car restoration facility. His facility is considered to be the benchmark for quality repairs. From repairing late model vehicles to restoring vintage automobiles, Jim has done it all. In 1994, Jim expanded his services to help protect consumers from the dangers, costs, and hassles associated with poorly repaired vehicles.

As a testament to his expertise, Jim is frequently used as an “expert witness” in auto body repair trials. Jim gives the consumer a place to seek out an independent expert’s documentation about the quality and safety of their repaired vehicle, and any associated diminished value with the repairs vehicle. In addition, Jim will assist consumers dealing with the auto body facility or insurer that may be responsible for any additional parts and procedures that may be required to return their vehicle back to its pre-loss condition.


Diminished Value Experts

Diminished Value is defined as that portion of a damaged vehicle's pre-Loss Value that has not been restored through the repair process. A car that has never been in a crash may be worth $15,000 at resale but thousands less if it has been in an accident and repaired. But no matter how expertly repaired, a car with an accident history will likely be worth less than one without -- even if the car looks as good as new and runs better than it ever has. There's a way to make up the difference: a diminished value claim.
